Sens fan: You should remove Alfredsson. It's all media speculation that he'll be moved, zero substance.
The team can't trade him without MASSIVE fan backlash. He's been the captain of the Ottawa Senators since 1999. The team is in the playoff hunt.
What about a Ray Bourque scenario? Alfredsson has publicly stated he wouldn't want to go anywhere else for a cup and it would be worthless if he won it with anyone other than Ottawa. The team even offered to trade him when they decided to rebuild and he refused.
If Alfredsson wanted to go somewhere, he'd go. Even if Ottawa wasn't in the playoff hunt, they likely wouldn't move him. As it stands, he will not be traded.
